Situation: I’m typing in an input field and want to enter a special character, for example to type in “café”. I hit Alt + 130 to enter the “é” character.
For some reason, the “é” character shows up in the Firefox Google search box, not in the text box, then the page directs to a new page.
Data isn’t always saved (I guess that depends on the application.).
Response from Google: Known bug.
